I Got the feelin'

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

It's been a while since this has happened and I missed it. It's the feeling that I need to work out, that it is crawling around in my brain, that I'm actually day dreaming about it. I have a busy schedule and have not been happy with the available "me" time. I thought I could get up super early, but when I tried I realized it wasn't me and it wasn't something I could stick with. Fortunately, the winter was mild and I was able to make it outside for a run on a regular basis, but not on a constant basis (more than 2x per week in my dictionary). I was so excited when I got to run 2x this past weekend. I know I will not be successful in improving distance or time if I can only get out 1 or 2 times per week. School for my kids will begin to wind down very soon and the weather is getting better every day. I have been getting some kettlebell workouts in on a few evenings and I actually try and do some lunges or stretching when I'm warming up my morning oatmeal at work.. If b-l-t-s (bites, licks, tastes) add up to the negative than 30 second lunges add up to the positive, right? A coworker even mentioned she could tell I had lost weight...woohoo..I'm headed to Delaware next week and so I got on mapmyrun and routed a course around the neighborhood so I have set the path to run while I'm down there. Running 2x so close together tickled that workout button and so I got the feelin' and it feels great. What have you done to tickle your workout button this week?

    I have a gazelle, it kind of mimics to motion of cross contry skiing. Its a great workout for both lower and upper body. Can be done inside & folds up out of the way when not in use. Its also easy on my knees!. Its a great alturnative to running.

    I love that "I need a workout" feeling! Most of my workout time has been yardwork (Sun-Tues morn), but now I'm done for awhile. And that was a good cross-train workout, too. I'm excited about going to spin class tonight!
